Sump Pump Installation, Maintenance & Repairs Laporte Colorado


Did you understand? Sump pumps will fix most basement flooding and dripping issues as they are developed to remove water from basements and crawlspaces.

What is a Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a submersible pump that sits at the bottom of a sump pit, which is typically installed at the lowest sump pump servicepoint in your basement or crawl space. Ground water surrounding your house's structure is transported into a boundary drain system installed at the base of the structure. Water finds its way into the perforated drains and is rapidly diverted to the sump pit. The sump pump, which is triggered by a float switch, removes the water by pumping it to the closest storm drain, dry well or detention pond. A sump pump switches on only when water inside the sump pit reaches a pre-determined level.

Most new homes are equipped with sump pumps however older houses can be retrofitted with a sump system to prevent basement flooding. Our Midwest Plumbers plumbers are professionals at sump pump setup and repair work.

Sump Pump Installation

Sump pumps can be hard-wired into a house's electrical system or be plugged into an outlet. Numerous sump pumps are equipped with a battery backup to ensure that the pump will work when the power is out, such as throughout a severe storm when it's especially crucial that water is pumped away from your home.

A Midwest Plumbers plumbing technician can provide a number of backup options.

Sump Pump Maintenance

Test your sump pump regularly to make sure it will run when the next huge rainstorm occurs. Evaluate it by pouring a bucket of water into the sump pit. The pump must turn on, remove the water from the pit and shut itself off in a matter of seconds. Make sure that the float and the check valve move freely.

To clean your sump pit, remove any dirt, sand, gravel and other debris to increase the pump's efficiency and prolong its life. Make sure that the discharge line opening is free of obstructions so that water can be pumped through the line and from your basement or crawlspace.
